|“As someone who pores over countless business books each year, his was a joy to read. Frankly, I can’t stand the overly long, formulaic books that have only a couple of new ideas in the first two chapters and then fill the rest of the book with ponderous examples that barely advance the thinking. The Age of the Platform makes points throughout and that makes it fun and worth reading.”–Brian Sommer ZDNet blogger and founder of TechVentive|
|“The Age of the Platform is the kind of book to read if you want to better understand the Internet and how your company can fit into it and create a business model to profit from it.”
